April’s show, Edge, Gage & More, highlights eight Seattle artists who are expanding their talents and careers with help from the 2012 Artist Trust’s Edge Professional Development Program, Gage Academy of Art and more. We are pleased to present Flynn Bickley, Elizabeth Copland, Julie Devine, Jody Joldersma, Terrell Lozada, Barbara Noonan, Tamara Stephas and Chandler Woodfin.

Flynn Bickley’s dolls tell stories we may not know, but want to understand. They explore complex human conditions: gender identity, fantasy and emotion.

Whimsical ceramicist, Elizabeth Copland, finds her process a meditative conversation between her hands and the clay. Elizabeth received her BFA in Ceramics at the University of Washington and is currently a UW Academic Adviser.

Julie Devine’s oil paintings are expressive responses to light and form. She plays with abstraction and representation, finding where the two converge. Devine won first and second place in the Best of Gage juried competitions.

Terrell Lozada uses architecture as metaphor, wandering between the physical and metaphysical. Terrell will celebrate her 50th birthday in Paris this April.

Jody Joldersma’s provocative fables address social issues through allegorical narratives in paintings, scratchboard and sculpture.

Barbara Noonan breathes quiet simplicity into her pastels. She was featured in February’sPastel Journal and her painting “Near the Top” was just awarded Honorable Mention in the 14th Annual Pastel 100 Competition. Come see the painting!

Tamara Stephas’ work is fueled by issues of sustainability and the expanding human footprint. She juxtaposes landscape with trompe l’oeil and text, questioning the interface between humans and the environment.

Watercolorist, Chandler Woodfin, splashes spontaneity and color into her work. Chandler received her BFA from Columbia College, completed the Gage Academy of Art painting apprenticeship, and now teaches drawing and painting at Pratt Fine Arts Center.

Gallery Walk: Saturday, April 6th, 5:30 to 8pm.  Show runs Thursday, April 4th through Monday, April 29th.
